Trauma Center

About Our Trauma Center

Jersey Shore University Medical Center is the trauma center for adults and children in the region, providing expertise and specialty capabilities unavailable at any other hospital in Monmouth or Ocean County. Designated by the state as a Level II Trauma Center in 1990, we treat more than 1,600 trauma patients per year.

A Level II Trauma Center means you will be cared for by a team of experts who specialize in traumatic injury. We are staffed 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. We provide vital elements not available at other hospitals, including: full time board-certified trauma surgeons, 24-hour CT scans, operating rooms staffed around-the-clock, a dedicated Surgical Intensive Care unit and a Pediatric Intensive Care unit. The trauma admitting area is staffed by specialized nurses and technicians whose sole responsibility is to care for trauma patients. All of these elements ensure that trauma patients will receive the specialized care they need to increase the chance of survival from serious injury.

Trauma care starts with prevention. Our professionals work to identify injury trends, and develop educational programs to help keep our communities safe and injury free.
